(a.k.a. Laxton’s Progress #9, Greater Progress, and Blue Bantam) (Pisum sativum) 58-65 days.       A leading large-podded, home garden, heirloom variety. The Progress #9 Garden Pea is a superb tasting old-time favorite, bearing large 4-5″ pods, with 6-9 peas each. Wrinkled, dark-green seeds are of fine quality. Dwarf vines grow to 15-20 in., and when grown close together in a block will support each other and choke out weeds. This is our favorite way to grow many of our peas and beans! This variety originally developed in Britain. Disease Resistance: Fusarium Wilt.

Progress #9 PPeas are a cool weather crop, that like well drained soil and plenty of organic matter to assist with moisture retention. Direct sow Heirloom / Open Pollinated Peas as soon as soil can be worked in the spring. Plant Progress #9 Pea seeds in full sun, 1-1½” deep, 1 – 2″ apart, in rows 18-24″ apart.
